BE ON THE LOOK OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!
There have been two suspicious incidents involving a male subject approaching children.
The first suspect was described as an older white male with a beard, wearing a blue baseball cap and he was driving a white taxi(car) with black letters and numbers on the side. The car also had a yellow taxi sign on top of it. The suspect approached a fourth grader at Central Elementary School in the parent pick-up section. He told the student that his father had sent him to pick up the student and tried to get him to go with him. When the student advised the suspect that he didn’t have a father, the suspect walked back to his car and left.
The second suspect was described as a white male, blonde hair, unknown facial hair, late 50’s, driving a black Chevrolet Silverado with pool cleaning equipment in the back of the pickup. The suspect stopped in the middle of the road and started talking to two little girls riding their bikes. As the complainant started walking toward the truck, the suspect sped off. The girls advised deputies that the suspect asked them to get in front of his vehicle.
It is unknown at this time if the suspect(s)/incidents are related.
If you have any information regarding either of these suspect(s)/vehicles, contact the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office, (863)763-3117.
